Ominous Sky Quilt




This is my interpretation of the sky just before a hurricane arrives.

I have been through several large hurricanes; the name of this piece says it all….”Ominous”.

Every year from June first through November thirtieth I question my reason for staying in an area that has been the bull’s-eye many times. Luckily, my home has been spared each time.  The trees though have not been so lucky. That is why this mostly treeless scene was the basis for this quilt. “Ominous” is hurricane season in Southeastern North Carolina.

This quilt is “puzzle pieced” appliqué using commercial quilting cottons.
I left the outer border off kilter, to let the viewer know how it feels during our stormy season.
